As I stated in a previous post, I was in the process of moving to Pittsburgh and it’s done! Well, I’m on Mcdonald, PA, but still only a half hour from downtown 🙂 It takes a special person to enjoy moving and most people hate it. I am a hybrid of the two. I love the new place I move to and the organizing and packing part. What I hate is the actual moving of all my crap and in this case the crap of two people into the new place.
I know that there are people you can pay to move your stuff from the old place to the new, but I wish I could pay them to move it all inside, unpack it for me, and arrange it in the order I tell them. That would be well worth the money because after a long day of running up and down steps and carrying heavy things (not even furniture) I’m beat.
I do want to express how cool this apartment building is, though. There is a key card you must swipe to get into the building BUT you can also call my phone (using a keypad outside of the door) and I press a number on my phone and I can unlock the door. So now if I’m expecting company or forget my key card I can simply call or have a guest call and unlock the door remotely. How cool is that? It’s not super new technology, but it is sooo convenient!
All in all, no matter how much work goes in to moving my stuff and unpacking it is worth it. I can now start a new chapter of my life in a new city with my lovely other half. He’s supportive of my craft and always there to help me with the computer problems that always seem to pop up. So, raise a glass (cherry coke for me) to a new year and a new opportunity to succeed.
